The wave of new openings in Foggy Bottom continues. The positive growth here is fantastic. Devon & Blakely, Roti, Sweet Green, Circa have all recently opened. Filter Coffeehouse, District Commons, Burger, Shake & Tap are all on the way and now Whole Foods opens Sept. 6th. Sweet.
For some reason many of us in PoPville are obsessed with grocery stores. And for those that are – this new Whole Foods will not disappoint. Ed. Note: Full Disclosure after the preview we all received gift bags including a liter of olive oil and sweet potato, potato chips – 2 known weaknesses of mine. The two level 36,000 square feet Whole Foods Foggy Bottom is located at 2201 Eye Street, NW. From a press release:
“The new store offers a host of exciting features, including a vast produce section with seasonal and local offerings; indulgent bakery section serving fresh-made cakes and pretzels, breads and gluten-free options; guaranteed fresh seafood bought straight from local boats and a meat department with over 80% of the meat sourced locally; and more.”
At the end of the day, it’s just a grocery store, but it’s an awesome grocery store.
Lots of photos after the jump.
At first glance I thought the sign below said no physical altercations. And I was like, holy cow, they anticipate people fighting over the Dry Aged Beef. Then I realized it said All Physical Alterations Prohibited…
One of the better caviar selections I’ve seen in a while.
Seriously great beer selection.
But you can still grab your PBR tall boys as well.
A fine selection of Hemp Milk as well.
And finally a touch screen ordering system for sandwiches, burgers, sushi, pizza, salad bars, hot soups and more.
